Good morning, Myra,
I don't think I got to say 'goodbye'. If I did, I don't remember! You and the K's were absolutely wonderful and I thank you for making my husband's special day one that he'll never forget. And it was such a thrill to sing with instruments behind me...a first for me. It was a delight working with you and I wish you all the best.
